Art 388 Welding and Fabrication

An upper-division sculpture course with a technical and material focus on welding and fabrication with steel. A variety of welding and fabrication processes are explored. Builds on skills developed in lower division courses and expands sculptural thinking, refines personal visual language, advances the development of ideas, and builds technical skills. Experimental materials, methods, and concepts are explored and encouraged. Research and presentations of living sculptors offer perspective and context for contemporary issues and discussions which investigate those issues.




Prerequisites: (required for art and art history majors and recommended for non-majors), Art 292. Art 291 recommended for all majors. Open to non-majors with instructor’s consent or departmental approval.
